A message from Mr. Thompson, Our Principal:
Dear Tuckaseegee Elementary Families,
Welcome to the second half of the 2018-2019 school year! As the new principal of Tuckaseegee Elementary, I am excited and honored to be a Panther. I can't wait to partner with you. Together, we will have an awesome school year. My passion for education and the success of all students has been shaped over my years serving as a student, teacher, and assistant principal. My collegiate educational experience includes UNC-Greensboro, Pfeiffer University, and UNC-Charlotte. My number one priority at Tuckaseegee Elementary is that every student experiences academic growth and an increase in learning.
The remaining portion of the 2018-2019 year will focus on learning about Tuckaseegee Elementary. I also plan to innovate the way instruction looks as I collectively partner with teachers to design instruction that impacts all students. The teaching staff at Tuckaseegee Elementary is fired up to continue to perfect their instructional practices and they are ready to push each Panther to their highest ability.
You are a huge part of the Tuckaseegee Elementary success. Parent involvement increases student achievement and enriches the school community. Please feel free to regularly partner with our school. By doing so, you are providing valued attention to students, teachers, and the school community. As we build upon existing relationships and forge new ones, let us collaboratively support the social, emotional and academic well-being of each child at Tuckaseegee Elementary. Through this teaming effort, we will make tremendous progress for all.
I ask that you read with your child daily and ask them questions about what they are reading. Tuckaseegee Elementary will provide training to our families on reading strategies that you can use at home. We will also make sure that you are aware of your child's performance and reading levels as well as growth throughout the year.
I believe that Tuckaseegee Elementary Students are brilliant. I am here along with the entire administrative team and staff to support your child's development and school experience. This will be an amazing year!
